About the Show/Event
Information for Prom 55 - Jephtha at The Royal Albert Hall, Inner London (Concert). Part of the BBC Proms. Following on from the success of last year's Theodora, the multi-year Proms Handel cycle continues with the composer's last, and perhaps greatest, oratorio, Jephtha. Period-performance specialist Richard Egarr conducts the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Chorus in the devastating story of the warrior Jephtha commanded by God to sacrifice his daughter Iphis. Tenor Allan Clayton is the conflicted Jephtha, with Trinidadian soprano Jeanine De Bique as Iphis.
Performers Alan Clayton (Jephtha), Jeanine De Bique (Iphis), Hilary Summers (Storge), Tim Mead (Hamor), Cody Quattlebaum (Zebul), Rowan Pierce (Angel).
